Kinda quiet today, apart from good numbers of low flying Swifts along the coast, but the tide and wind never got it together enough to make a seawatch viable at Ainsdale - there'll be a better chance on Thursday and Friday this week, assuming the winds don't fall away to nothing.
Best bet is to post a few pix of the young Avocet in front of the Sandgrounders hide at Marshside, in the vain hope it'll prompt a few more than the Birdblog stalwarts into posting a comments or two....everybody go "ahhhh....", and then let me know what you're seeing.
The Little Stint and one of the Little Gulls was still on the Junction Pool during a quick visit at lunchtime today, with about 20 Dunlin and a few Ringed Plover - you never know, with all the Yankee waders popping up around the country, they might draw something in, even a Red Necked Phal would do the trick.
Before I forget, the "Captcha" software for posting comments on the blog seems to be confusing a few folk, so here's a step by step guide, or rather a box by box guide on how you use it:
1 Name: Kinda obvious I think.
2. E-mail address: Equally obvious.
3. URL: Only fill this one in if you want to link back to a website from your comment.
4. Remember personal info: Ignore this if you want.
5. Comment: This is where you put what you wanna say.
6. Captcha: Type the characters you can see in the small "picture" rectangle into the box - these change every few minutes to stop the blog getting battered by automated spam. If you don't type in what you see, the comment will not be accepted.
7. Submit: Click it and the comment is sent to me.
Think that covers it.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
